RCC Hunters Woods Exhibit  


Art Quilts by Anne Smyers

Reception: Sunday, September 22 • 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Anne Smyers is a Reston fiber artist who regularly exhibits Reston Community Center Hunters Woods. As a fiber artist, she works with fabric, creating compositions meant to be hung on the wall like other art mediums such as painting or photography. Fiber art is also known as art quilting, as the finished pieces most often have three layers bound together by stitching, as do quilts.

Anne’s upcoming show, at RCC Hunters Woods from September 16 through October 31, is titled Say it With Flowers. The title reflects her love of flowers and propensity to work with botanical images. Her work is informed by interests, including gardening; a lifelong practice of tai chi chuan, which is a Chinese meditative movement series; and her artistic eye that looks for the best arrangement of a given set of elements. Come to the artist reception with light refreshments and some brief remarks by Anne on September 22 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. Her work can be seen at
